Series Overview: When it comes to caring for ourselves, we tend to focus on the outside - our fitness, our clothes, makeup and a host of other ways to keep ourselves looking good. Likewise, we also must be intentional about caring for our souls. When it comes to your inner self, it is fueled by what you believe. What you believe about God, and what you believe about yourself are key. They lay the foundation for how you think, what you desire, and how you live. God’s word shows us that living for Him isn’t primarily an issue of self-discipline and effort, but in how well we live out our identity found in Christ.

Be very careful, then, how you live-not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. -Ephesians 5:15–17

We overestimate what we can do without the Spirit and underestimate what we can do with the Spirit
You are filled with the Spirit as you practice Spiritual Breathing
